Nurse Aide

About the Program

In as little as four weeks, you can obtain the necessary training to become a certified nurse aide (CNA) in the state of Colorado. Nurse aides provide the most fundamental patient care in hospitals, hospice care, home health care and long-term care facilities while under the supervision of a registered nurse. Nurse aides have an enormous and lasting impact on their patients/clients. 

This program is designed around YOU! This five-credit certificate is offered during the day, night or weekend in 7 or 15 weeks respectively and is available at either our downtown Denver campus (Auraria Campus) or our Lowry location (Health Sciences at Lowry). In addition, this program is approved by the Colorado Board of Nursing. Upon graduation, you will be eligible to take the Colorado Nurse Aide Certification Exam.
